From the stretching technique to the drawing board there is an additional rim to the work, covered by bonding tape. It is left on to provide more framing options – but can (as the author does) also be seen as an integral part of the work.

About The Artwork

This drawing is a reflection on an old mural in our local church. The original from 1411 features a dramatic encounter of what could have been be a bold young man, a courtier maybe, on one side and the devil and (and maybe again) a helper on the other. The mural of the late medieval colleagues is only present in fading remains of colors and stucco, so it is a free interpretation held together by the old spirits and relations. An artwork about defiance and actual resistance, winkingly and seriously taken at once. For a better handling and more framing options the rim of wet bonding tape from the fixation at the drawing board has been left on the artwork.

Christian Kabuß is an internationally established German artist and musician. He studied Medicine at the University of Rostock, then went on to Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee, Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia and Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design Budapest to practice Fine Art. The artistic language within his paintings is deeply linked to a phenomenological approach to bodiliness, the freedom of subconscious artistic creation, and the theoretical and practical considerations of Design. Kabuß has exhibited in Germany and abroad. His works are present in regional, national and international collections. It is his aim to work as honest as possible, and he tends towards imagery, which is embedded in Lebenswelt, and sound. As a pianist, he performs small intimate concerts. His music is soft, sometimes freely improvised and portrays a sense of a parallel-world. Exhibitions in Italy, Sweden, Germany, China, and Japan.
